Said joint managing director sales and marketing Mark Llewellyn: “We are absolutely delighted to be shortlisted for this prestigious bfa HSBC award. Being recognised as one of the leading franchises in the UK is a fantastic accolade and we are all very proud!”
Known as the ‘Oscars’ of the franchising industry and set to take place on 24 November in Birmingham, the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards evening is the flagship event in the franchising calendar and finalists are definitely ones to watch.
This year saw a record number of entries submitted across all categories, leading to an overall increase versus 2021. Despite what continues to be challenging times for most independent businesses, the franchising sector has shown strength and resilience. As a result, many bfa members have reported strong financial performance and continue to build strong, healthy networks.
Revive! will be battling it out against six other franchise brands to take home the coveted Franchisor of the Year accolade.
Becoming a finalist in this category is recognition of strong ethical franchising credentials and a commitment to franchising. It serves as a marker of success for any franchise, proving the business is working in a structured and well balanced way to serve the best interests of franchisees, head office staff and consumers.
Joint managing director operations and finance Terry Mullen explained: “We focus on training and supporting our franchisees and keeping a real ‘family’ feel to the business. At Revive! we have ambitious plans for growth and we work very hard, but we enjoy ourselves while we do it!”
Commenting on this year’s awards, Pip Wilkins, CEO of the British Franchising Association, said:
“To be announced as a finalist for this award is a huge achievement and a real testament to any brand’s hard work and determination. Each year, these awards let us show franchisors that we’ve noticed their efforts, we’ve recognised their dedication and resilience and we are thankful for their commitment. A big congratulations to the whole Revive! team.”
